Tasting Notes

Vinous 94-97

The 2016 Le Dôme is simply magnificent. Silky, lifted and nuanced in the glass, it possesses superb aromatic freshness and textural finesse. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2016 will need at least a few years to fully come together, but it has all the right elements to develop into a superb wine. [Antonio Galloni, 01/04/2017]

Robert Parker 93

The 2016 Le Dome is a blend of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot picked on 17 and 10 October, respectively, at 30 hectoliters per hectare and matured in 80% new oak. There is 15% alcohol this year. It has a very ripe and decadent bouquet with small black cherries, crushed violet and Indian ink, very open and intense. The palate is rounded on the entry with a lot of wood tannin on the entry that just dry out the second half. It is a voluminous Le Dôme, quite muscular, although I just found a touch of bitterness coming through on the finish. [09/28/2017]
